What happens when Kendrick Lamar crashes a hipster wedding? The crowd goes wild, the video goes viral, Lamar is a hero and the happy couple has a great story for their grandkids (who are probably named Juniper or Kale).
What happens when Kendrick Lamar crashes a wedding in the Midwest full of middle-aged white people? He gets thrown the fuck out. And that’s exactly what happened when Lamar and his posse (which didn’t help matters) attempted to spread the joy of celebrity by hitting the dance floor at a stranger’s wedding in Columbus, Ohio last month.
Luckily, someone at said wedding was hip enough to record the incident on their phone, and thus the footage has found its way into TMZ’s grubby hands.
Wearing a green baseball cap and armed with cheesy, adult-pleasing dance moves, Lamar and co. arrive just in time to wow the old folks to the tune of Whitney Houston’s classic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” Evidently unaware that Lamar is a famous person and this is a momentous party crash and not just some delinquent randoms trying to cause trouble and make use of the open bar, one particularly indignant older gentleman begins questioning Lamar’s friend, soon telling him to “Get the fuck out.”
(TMZ is told that someone, who may or may not have been the curmudgeon’s grandkid, recognized Lamar and defused the situation)
So what did we learn from this incident? Celebrity wedding crashers have got to know their audience. I bet Adam Levine would have killed at this wedding.
